I think for the most part, the biggest sting of the downfall of the Kentucky football program is the fact that the Vanderbilt Commodores have surpassed Kentucky in the SEC hierarchy.  Last years 38-8 beatdown at the hands of the Commodores was the toughest pill to take and is still considered one of the low opponents of Kentucky football.  It’s not like Vanderbilt football has set the world on fire.  Since that game in Nashville last year, the Commodores have gone just 5-6, but that is ions above the 2-10 Kentucky has gone since then.

Perhaps it is the fact that no matter what, the Commodores fight hard.  They were on the verge of a couple of big upsets last year, most notably losing to Florida 26-21.  In comparison, Kentucky hardly seems able to get off the bus versus the Gators and other top tier teams.  This year, Vandy is fighting for a second straight bowl bid, with a 4-4 record.  With Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Wake Forest still on the schedule for the Commodores, this game versus the Wildcats is a must win game and there is nothing more Kentucky wants to do than to spoil the Commodores season.  Let’s meet the Commodores:
